... and the congestion is even uglier now I'm sure.

That is very cool. Would be interesting to see U.S. highways included too.

True.

101 in the Bay Area is missing--that freeways carries 100,000+ for about 100 miles in the region starting in San Jose all the way to well north of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Also if they had included state highways. LA has several that carry over 100,000 cars a day.

Atlanta's congestion looks every bit as horrible as I expected it to.

Very suprised to see the traffic levels between San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas, as well as the San Diego/LA route....

Why would people make those commutes so often?

Just because those areas have the most vehicles passing through them doesn't necessarily mean they are the most congested or cause the most headaches. I wonder how many of those areas actually have "functional" mass traffic? You know, the kind that there is a lot of, but moves along at a steady pace?

I can't speak to SoCal (but I suspect it's similar) but there is a LOT of trucking that comes up the I-35 corridor in Texas. These trucks and tourism probably account for more traffic between the big cities than commuters. Nobody would commute between Austin and Dallas - that's about a 3 hour drive.
